Day Eleven! May 22, 2014 Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace and 10 Downey Street

   We started the day at Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guards. We actually got to go into the gates of Buckingham Palace! (: Dr. Nobiling and Constable Watson kept it a secret till we got there. I feel unbelievably honored to be able to enter the gates! We were actually standing on the stairs of  the palace and leaning on the building. I am pretty sure that bystanders thought we were important and/or famous! People were probably taking pictures of us... little did they know. Since we were actually in the gates of Buckingham Palace we were unable to take pictures. 
   Constable Watson used his magic once again to get us onto Downing Street and right up to the front door of 10 Downing Street! For all who don't know, 10 Downing Street is where the Prime Minister lives. You can only imagine how much security was there! Honestly, today could not have been much better! (: I am still smiling because of the amazing opportunity. We ended the day at New Scotland Yard for a presentation by Constable Watson and Stuart Tracey! Their main focus was talking about the 2012 Olympics and how they prepared for the amazing event.
